Ombia 1,001 Nights liquid soap withdrawn from sale in Germany after complaints that its packaging was insulting to Muslims

The German discount chain Aldi Süd has withdrawn its own-brand Ombia 1,001 Nights liquid soap from sale after complaints that its packaging was insulting to Muslims – only to face new complaints from non-Muslim customers demanding it be reinstated.
